It must be Bush’s fault… Yeah that’s what I thought.
Retail gasoline prices in Sioux Falls increased 11.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.85 per gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com.
The national average increased 4.3 cents per gallon in the last week, to $3.80 per gallon.
Sioux Falls? average prices are 33.4 cents higher than the same day one year ago, and 38.7 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
Under Obama and his energy secretary Steven Chu, we’ll be paying European prices for gasoline in no time. Coincidence or not? I might consider giving Obama the benefit of the doubt and accept the idea that he can’t do anything to stop the rise in gas prices, but for the fact that he hired an energy secretary who publicly stated that we must ?boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.?
The first thing he could do to convince me he cares about gas prices would be to fire the guy who wishes they were sky high.
